Quilting Information:  November 5, 2014

The International Quilt Festival

Houston, Texas

October 28 to November 2, 2014

It’s overwhelming.

First, the building itself is at least two city blocks long and three stories high.

Here’s a little video taken as I am walking through the green park located in front of the Convention Center:

And here is a close-up taken just across the street from the Convention Center:

The Festival uses the WHOLE BUILDING.

There are over 1000 vendors.

There are 31 Special Exhibits, which includes the juried quilts.

There are demonstrations, lectures, quilt artists working in studios set up for them, and all sorts of classes.

There are quilts from all over the world here.

Over 60,000 people from all over the world will attend. 

Thanks heavens I have THREE whole days to see/experience it all as it is overwhelming.
